/me looks around for a pink triangle... ;-)

Seriously, just use another distribution already if metahumor somehow bothers you.

Anyone here think they just got taken on a major troll-ride?
Actually I was the one who posted the first reply and thought this thread would just die or become a flame fest and be closed, nice to see it's still going!

I heard Dan Brown is writing a book about the dark secrets behind Slackware...

I still feel haunted by the original users from the earlier Slackware versions: satan, snake and gonzo (the first two lived in /home/hell and /home/pit). And how about that "darkstar" hostname? It scares me!!!

I think I need therapy.

SubGeniuses (or SubGenii), Aliens, Goblins, and numerous other unsavoury characters! Why can't Slackware be more like the clean, wholesome software produced by Microsoft?

Will we discover who Pat *really* is???

This is an international network we're talking about. People from all corners of the world are involved: USA, UK, Netherlands, Australia, Brazil. And I'm just taking about the "core" team.
I cannot say more. "They" will be after me. I must hide!!!

Let's hope they don't get Dan Brown to write the next SlackBook. "The Da Vinci Code" was by far the worst book I've ever read.

Yes, just imagine angry slackers of Vatican protesting in the streets.

this post has been inspired me to become a minister in the church of the sub genius.

Seeing as how I'm a slacker the 30 bucks will be hard to come by, but once im in i'll be able to attain 30 dollars just by slacking.


Ahh the sweet parody of religion.

The trunks of the ceramic elephants in my home must face east when I run slackware, else the neighbourhood's feral felines perform ritual sadistic torture on the area wombats, whom are extinct, since I've never heard of them existing outside of Oz...

I can't help but think that if they'd stuck to the basics of what a web-browser was meant to do, instead of adding all the unnecessary fluff like javascript, java applets, activex, flash and the like, we'd be having but a fraction of all these security issues.

And then, to make matters worse, Adobe go and make the exact same mistake with .pdf documents, so now, we can't trust those either. Just Brilliant!

Oh, Sod it!.. I'm going back to using NCSA Mosaic.
